    When you think you know everything, lie over and over again, accuse anyone who challenges you of being unpatriotic, and have amazing arrogance, the people revolt. When you pile on the ineptitude of this Administration, not securing the borders, Katrina, the war in Iraq, people say, “You really want us to stick with you? You gotta be kidding me.” They think we are stupid, and we think they are delusional.

  3. Concerning that graphic:

    While I’m happy that the artist had the good taste not to do that way, a more accurate depiction would have had Newt with his pants around his ankles.
